Want suggestions as to how to do blood red?

And just having a quick look the martyred lady has very little red in it - bloody rose is the red one.

To prevent any 'misunderstandings' if I post IN ORANGE then I am joking.
Thank you

My original fluff back in the day when I had no flippin imagination was that at Santuary 101 the sisters were having akegger and invited the necrons. A fight broke out which turned into an all out war. Not gonna use that retardedness again
I'm shooting more for an Order that not only celebrates the sacrifices of their martyrs but seeks to emulate their examples. That way I'm completely in like with GW's fluff of "Okay....Sisters of Battle fluff...let's have them die...again" and giving them something more than being female Imperial Guard in Power Armor (like the Order's first Canonness dying while driving a Blesses Weapon through the heart of a Bloodthirster).

And that's after trying several non-GW Blood-Red-like paints as well. I've no idea how Ferrari does it, though I'm guessing that having it done by robot makes the sheer amount of layers needed easier to stomach.
I'm looking at starting with Mechanicus Red and blending it up to Blood Red for the highlights by mixing the two in different ratios and layering each progressively. I think the minimum I'd need to get a decent look would be about 7 layers (adjusting the ratios from pure Mechanicus to 3:1, to 2:1 to 1:1, to 1:2, to 1:3 to pure Blood Red). I could double that by doing the same with Blazing Orange for my highlights but I'd probably go insane....er.

I've played with using Washes to effect how the color looks but I don't really like the end result. I'm tempted to do wet blending, but I've got no real practice with it so that might be too hard for me to pull off.

Sure. Mind you, my complaint isn't so much that I can't make it look good, I've got a handle on that. I want a variety of Blood Red that doesn't take at least 2 layers (or 3, but that's only after a layer of Mechrite, it's a good 5 over black) before the color underneath stops shining through.

Ask not the Eldar a question, for they will give you three answers; all of which are true and horrifying to know.

Try mechrite red for the base then you can very easily move to blood red or you can build it up using a darker shade up to blood red

Orange is nice choice of a highlight or even pink

I always liked the idea of an order that is secret and no one speaks of because of something very odd that they do which why I considered the whole vampire type idea. They wouldn't be corrupted by chaos but say the planet thye are from might have a virus or disiese that makes them have to drink blood to sustain them and the atmoshpere makes them very senstive to solar rays

I use a white undercoat for pretty much all models.

But this works for white or black.

Heh - I was offering suggestions, not asking for them.

Looking at the advice posted by TheSpore and Maidel both and comparing it to what I posted as already doing, I can only conclude I'm being told to accept it and suffer in silence

White (Black)

Scab red (or mechite red if done over black)

Brown ink

scab red

Red Gore

Blood red.
